The Center for International Education, Inc. operates the educlipper.net website (“Site”) and educlipper mobile app. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully to learn what information we collect from you through the Site and how we use that information. This Privacy Policy also describes the choices available to you regarding the use of, your access to, and how to update and correct your personal information.

1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect two types of information about users: personally identifiable information (“personal Information”), and non-personally identifiable information (“non-personal information”).

Personal Information: We will  only use aggregated/anonymous data for product improvement we might reach out to individual users for user research to inform new features, but we’d inquire about their interest separately (and this is likely unrelated)

Email Lists and Requests for Additional Information: If you provide your email address to join one of our mailing lists or contact us to request additional information or submit comments, we will collect the information you submitted and may use it to respond to your request or inform you about program services. Email messages we send in this regard will permit you to unsubscribe from future such messages. Once you unsubscribe, we will not send you any further promotional emails unless you specifically request that we do so later. Your option not to receive promotional material will not preclude us from corresponding with you, by email or otherwise, regarding your existing or past business relationships with us (e.g., any purchase of our products or use of our services, or responses to requests for information you pose to us either through use of the Site or by other means), and will not preclude us from accessing and viewing your personal information in the course of maintaining and improving our Site, products and services.

Account Registration and Profiles: Create a username, add your email,first and last name, create a password, the school and grade(s) at which you teach are required to create an account. Our account profile allows you to provide additional optional biographical information to us such as your teaching area and social media website addresses .

Clips, Comments and other forums: If you share clips, comment on clips or participate in any other similar features such as chats, blogs or other forums through our Site, the information submitted by or to you will not be considered personal information and may be publicly available. You should be aware that comments, opinions or other information submitted via clips, comments or other forums can be read, collected or used by other users of the Site and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the information you choose to make public in this manner. For more information regarding the proper use of chats or forums please refer to our Terms of Service.
